Dreaming of Spring with Carters! #CartersSpringStyle #ad + GIVEAWAY!

Carter's Spring Style

I participated in this program on behalf of Carter's and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. I know that most of the US is still buried under a bazillion feet of snow, but here in Arizona, we're loving our bragging season -- Spring! I always like to do two big hauls for the kids clothes -- one at the beginning of the school year, and one right before spring break. Our summers are hot and long, so we have to find a TON of great warm weather outfits for all of the kids. We've lucked out in that we have a Carter's store here in the Phoenix metro, so I've been day dreaming about cute outfits for the kidlets. Is it wrong that I want some of this stuff in my size? I mean. Seahorses. I have a thing for seahorses, and I'm so not above making my kids love what I love, haha! I'm really big into coral and mint right now, too. I don't think you can go wrong with that combo! Isn't this the cutest outfit? Dress it up or dress it down! Just so y'all know, the Carter’s Baby and Kid Up … [Read more...]

You haven’t had chocolate until you’ve had a GODIVA Truffle FlightTM. #TruffleTakeoff #Giveaway

godiva

You guys know that I’ve been doing my best to just eat like a normal person, stop obsessing over points, and just truly ENJOY food again, right? Well I got an email a while back. From GODIVA. When GODIVA emails, you listen. They wanted to send me some chocolate (YES, PLEASE) and hear what I had to say about them (I can handle that). Ladies and ladies, let me introduce you to the GODIVA Truffle FlightTM.  Yes, that’s a pistachio one in the middle. Yes, it was pretty heavenly. Now, a while back, I would have hesitated. I would’ve counted points and calculated weekly allowances. But the second I opened this box (and took photos), I dove in. The hardest part was deciding which truffle to eat first! I received the Nut Lovers GODIVA Truffle Flight, which contains Salted Almond, Hazelnut Crunch, Pecan Caramel, Butterscotch Walnut, Maple Walnut, and Pistachio flavored truffles. But the Truffle Flight experience doesn’t stop at nuts. They come in varieties like Cake, … [Read more...]

#sponsored: #SprayEveryDrop with Clorox Smart Tube! #Giveaway

Clorox Smart Tube Technology

You've been there, I've been there. You're cleaning your kitchen counters, scrubbing away at crusty peanut butter from today's lunch, but you can't quite get the last little bit of cleaner to spray out of your bottle. It's maddening, really. I always end up just unscrewing the darn nozzle, and pouring the last bit out. But then it's a huge mess -- too much liquid, splashing every where. So then Clorox came upon a stroke of genius: What if the spray tube actually sucked up all of the liquid from the bottom of the bottle? And so, an idea was born. That idea turned into Smart Tube Technology! And let me tell you -- it's pretty cool. See the yellow stripe all the way down the left side? The tube is contoured to the side of the bottle, and runs down the whole length! That way it slurps up every drop. Hooray! But they didn't just stop at putting these tubes in Clorox Clean Up...that'd just be silly! Check it out, my dears: So Clorox, if ever you want to let other folks … [Read more...]

Keeping Our Bodies in Check with Probiotics from Provella #sponsored

Provella Logo

So each time you sit down for a meal, I can pretty much bet money that you're pestering your kids to eat their food ("Broccoli is good for you! Look! They're trees for tiny people!"), right? Right. But do you focus on what you're putting into YOUR body? I know that I do my best to eat right (with the occasional burger splurge), but I am sure that there's more I could be doing to make sure I have a healthy inside. I work out as often as I can, and I drink a lot of water. One thing I don't do, however, is take probiotics. I have always wanted to, but I just never made the leap to actually find some that fit my lifestyle and goals! Provella™ is specifically designed for women to promote digestive, feminine, and immune health.* It's taken once daily by mouth, and it's loaded with stuff that will help establish and maintain balance. What is flora imbalance? Flora imbalance occurs when "bad" bacteria outweigh the "good" bacteria. Flora imbalance can occur from many different … [Read more...]

Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie Children’s Book #Review and #Giveaway — SO Good!

Unknown

Do you guys remember the two little girls from across the pond who rapped to Nicki Minaj's song "Super Bass"? I fell in love with them, and so did Ellen DeGeneres! With imaginations as big as these girls have, I knew they were destined to do something amazing. Rosie reminds me so much of myself when I was a kid. Loud, creative, and possessing more energy than should be allowed ;). These girls have put their talents to great use and have written a children's book!

I've been itching to get some fun Freckleberry branded swag to wear when I race -- mostly a performance tee that will wick away sweat and yuckies, but still look great. I had looked at a few sites to design one, but I'd never made the jump. When I ran the Skirt Chaser 5K and the Color Run, I was so bummed that I didn't have a fun shirt. So many people had really adorable shirts, and I'm determined to be one of them for my next race! CafePress.com has gotten in touch and they're hooking me up with a performance tee that I can customize with my URL. Sweet! They've also got really cute iPhone cases and iPad cases! Not only that, but they're offering a giveaway for you guys, too! One lucky Freckleberry Finds reader will win $25 to CafePress.com. Ends 3/7. Open Worldwide. a Rafflecopter giveaway … [Read more...]

Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build ‘N Style Pet Shop #Review & #Giveaway

PetShopBox

Growing up as a girl I had tons of Barbie® dolls and would get together with friends and we would create huge cities out of our entire basements for ourdolls to live in. Well now Barbie® and Mega Bloks® and have come out with Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build ‘n Style sets. This combines a great love of building blocks and Barbie® dolls that a ton of girls (and boys!) can really enjoy. We were excited to be able to review Mega Bloks® Barbie® Build ‘n Style Pet Shop. My daughter, who is almost 4, was so excited when she saw the box. It is geared toward kids 4+ and while she can help with snapping them together she understandably needed help with assembling it. When we first opened the box there were quite a few small bags with all the parts in it. We opened the box and sifted through them so I could check out the pieces first and then we started building. I followed the directions it came with and it took about 10-15 minutes, including sticker placement, to assemble … [Read more...]

The New Step2 Easy Turn Coupe is here! Win one while helping the Saving tiny hearts Society! #Giveaway

DSC_0571 EDIT

Holy. Awesome. That's what I said when I opened up my door to see the new Step2 Easy Turn Coupe. "But I have a coupe for my kids!" you might be saying. Oh no, my friends. You don't have a coupe like this. Step2 is at the 2013 Toy Fair this weekend debuting the new Easy Turn Coupe, and in celebration, I'm going to give you guys a sneaky peek! This bad boy is a lovechild of two really incredible products. I've always seen parents pushing their kiddos around in ride-ons like the Sportster, but the Easy Turn Coupe brings it to another level. I love the idea of a pretend car, but I didn't like that I couldn't see my kid! That's the biggest plus (for me) about the Easy Turn Coupe -- the see through roof! Assembly was pretty simple, and Andrew had it put together in about an hour or so. The kids were itching to get into it, and we had to struggle to keep them out of it while it wasn't fully assembled, haha! Here's some of my fave features: See Through Roof (obvs!) Cup holders! … [Read more...]
